As usual, a brilliant story. This one gets much darker than the previous two novels in the series, but still without losing the irony.
Ghosts, vampires, knights... the very best in the Dresden Files.
I loved Storm Front. Fool Moon rocks. But somehow Grave Peril kicks an already fast-paced series up a gear and feel like the proper beginning. I think this is partly because it introduces some of my favourite characters (Thomas and Michael). My only problem with it is that it can't end on any way but a downer, which always makes me a bit reluctant to start Summer Knight.
Favourite scene: Mushrooms.
Non molto differente dai primi due, mi sarei aspettato di piu'... c'e' tuttavia piu' ironia e anche un miglior finale probabilmente se confrontato ai precedenti.
The Nightmare turned its head to blink in my direction, surprised. [...] "Thou are not yet dead. How interesting." [...] "I can finish that one at leisure. But thou, wizard, I will make an end to at once."
"Yadda yadda yadda," I muttered. [...] "People don't talk like that anymore. All those thous and thees. Hells bells, at least the faeries can keep up with the dialect." ~ GRAVE PERIL
